In accordance with standard industry practices, there will be an additional vehicle fee on the second vehicle in each single family campsite, and on the third and fourth vehicles in any double family campsite, provided these vehicles are not joined to the first vehicle by a hitch and towed onto the site. In the case of motorcycles, the first two are considered as 1 vehicle for determining additional vehicle fees. The third and fourth motorcycle would also be considered as 1 vehicle. No additional vehicle fees are collected for bicycles.
Fire restrictions may be imposed at any time due to hot, dry weather conditions, at which time campfires and charcoal fires may not be allowed. For current fire conditions or weather closures contact Blanco Ranger District, (970) 878-4039.
